No words can fully express my sadness and hurt at this:
COLLEGE STATION, Texas — Southern California coach Michael Cooper cried during his postgame news conference — an injury to a star player caused the tears, rather than a tough defeat.
Senior guard Jacki Gemelos might be done for the season after hurting her left knee late in the first half of Sunday’s 71-70 loss to No. 10 Texas A&M. Sydney Carter hit a 3-pointer with 10 seconds left to lift the Aggies.
Gemelos, who entered the game averaging 11.6 points and a team-high 8 rebounds, was injured as she drove the lane 3:37 before the break. She writhed on the floor beneath the basket and sobbed in the hushed arena.
